We're heading out to eat as a family tonight.
I tell Sonshine where we're going as it's a new place to him.
He says, "Okay! We're going to CatFood Heaven"
No, "CatFISH Heaven"
"Okay Catfish Heaven!"
This place puts baskets of peanuts in the shells on the table and bowls of hushpuppies to enjoy while you wait.
So we order 3 childs plates (children plates??) one shrimp one catfish and one chicken strip. then give each kid some of each to try as it was all new to them. (We decided to branch out from the "grilled cheese and french fries" rut.)
Here are the results:
Gator ate all the fries, played architect with the peanuts. Refused everything else.
Sugars ate 1 peanut, about 15 hushpuppies, some fries. her shrimp and catfish. (yes, she's MINE)
Sonshine ate about 5 peanuts but when he threw the shells on the floor (as the signs on the walls tell you to do) he would periodically throw a nut down there too and JUST COULDN'T stand to leave em on the floor. No matter how much we tried to convince him to just get another from the bowl as the floor is DIRTY. He unequivacally stated "I do not like puppies!" Then ate his shrimp tail first. (note to self....remove the tails BEFORE giving shrimp to the kids!) When I asked him if he was gonna try his catfish he said "No! That's for cats Momma! Catfish is for cats not boys and girls!!"
hmmmm seems I missed some culinary education along the way..............
